Does anyone know what this stamp might be? It has no watermark that I could discern, has a c triangle and a nice carmine color. There does not seem to be any modification to the margins…that I can tell. Interesting at least! I have hundreds of these 1895 type 2 cent washington stamps but this is the only one like this I have.

Hi Jimidaho, and welcome. Is there any way you can post a larger scan? And also a picture of the back would be of help

To me it looks like there are small notches on the left side both on the top edge and on the bottom edge. If that is correct, then it looks like the perforation has been clipped of with scissors. A higher resolution image would help to determine it.

I will work on better images. I'm not used to this format as yet…promise to get better with it.

I'm hoping I got two images here. One of the individual stamp in question and another with it beside another normal Scott 252.

There were no coils stamps for this design, it can safely be assumed that it is a trimmed stamp.

Edit: Better images confirm, trimmed.

Here is a picture of the back. They didn't make coil stamps in the US in 1895 as far as I know.

Probably just trimmed the top and there was excess margin on the bottom.

Look closely at the bottom cut, compare the edge of the stamp with the edge of the stamp design. Also look closely for small indents on straight edges (indicating reminder perf holes).
